The song of the day for Friday, October 21, 2022, is “Maybe This Time.”
About This Song
“Maybe This Time,” written by John Kander and Fred Ebb in 1963, appeared in the film version of Cabaret. It was not written for the original Broadway production. Nor was it written especially for the film version; Kander and Ebb had written the song in 1963 for Kaye Ballard. It was therefore not eligible for consideration for an Academy Award. The song is, of course, widely associated with Liza Minnelli, who sang it in the film version of Cabaret. Tony Bennett sings the song regularly at his concerts.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Maybe This Time” on February 26, 1972, in London for his album With Love. Robert Farnon wrote the arrangement and conducted the orchestra.
“Maybe This Time,” as well as With Love is available on Apple Music.
Tony Bennett sang this song at every concert of his I ever attended and it was always a highlight for me. Today, I’m happy to present “Maybe This Time” from his appearance at the iTunes Festival in London in 2010.
